Wax is Blue. Today we have 20km Skate and Classic Groomed.  It is forecast to just keep on snowing for the next 24 hours, so trail surfaces will be a mix of packed powder and powder.  We will be grooming through the day… but it’s going to be pretty soft.

Backcountry trails are all powder.  Lots of groups skied Bolton to Trapps on the Catamount Trail- conditions are perfect.

Make a Day of It: Today’s spotlight is on Jericho Settlers’ Farm.  Krista and Mark do a great job providing

Saturday: All the rumors are  true.  While valley locations have only a dusting in the last 48 hours, Bolton has been hammered with powder.  Today might be about the best day of skiing of the year.  With some nice heavy snow on Wednesday topped with some of the lightest powder.  Justin, our ace  snow reporter, is saying 23-27″ of new powder in the last 48 hours.  full report

Harold is grooming 25km this morning and on the groomed trail surface is packed powder/powder.  It is going to be pretty soft, fun skiing today.  Wax is blue and at 8am the temperature is 15 degrees.  The forecast is for warming a little  through the day and maybe some sun later in the afternoon.

In the backcountry first tracks are the name of the game today….. it’s a no consequences powder day.

Event Update: All this new snow is great for next Sunday’s Catamount Trail BC Challenge Trapps to Bolton.  Conditions don’t get much better. Register online  today.

Friday: It certainly is a winter wonderland once again up here at Bolton Valley. With 6″ two nights ago and 6-8″ last night, the backcountry is in great condition. We have not been able to groom the nordic trails as of 10am, but anticipate having it finished by noon. We will post what has been groomed as soon as we know. So come on up and enjoy the snow! There is even more on the way!
